When you have a toddler running around your home, you need to install basic childproofing mechanisms to avoid accidental falls. There are many products available on the market to help you ensure child safety during the most rambunctious period of life.
Install Window Stops
Most children under the age of 5 can easily slip through a window gap as small as 6 inches. To prevent accidental window falls, purchase a window stop. Many stops do not allow children to open windows past 4 inches. If you are not a fan of stops, choose a window guard to cover the lower half of your window.
Take Care With Stairs
You should not leave your child alone around stairs, even if you have baby gates. Older children can climb over gates or tear them down. Hardware-mounted baby gates at the top and bottom of every stairway can help you avoid any unattended stairway climbing. If you believe your child could climb over gates themselves, teach them how to go down the stairs backward. This can help keep them from falling forward and sustaining serious injuries.
Invest in Cables and Railings
Cables and railings can help you block off areas where your child could slip and fall. If you have a deck overlooking water or a high-up tree line, railings with cables can allow you to enjoy the view while protecting your child from falling over the edge. These railings will also fit indoors, along stairs or on second-story landings.
